Indulge and relax with this recipe for a whiskey sour cocktail.
3 tbs Bourbon
6 tbs fresh lemon juice (or 3 tbs lemon and 3 tbs fresh lime)
2 tsp sugar
6 ice cubes
maraschino cherries, for serving
Strain the lemon juice through a tea strainer to remove any pips and pulp. Place the Bourbon, sugar and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the ice cubes, cover and shake vigorously for a minute until the whiskey sour is seriously chilled. (Take care not to overfill the shaker, the cocktail and ice need loads of space to move when you shake it.
If you’re using a standard shaker, I’d say make for two people at a time max.) Pour whiskey sour into glasses and garnish with a cherry or two. Serve right away.
